Laboratory Testing

At Dr. Vet we understand that a thorough clinical examination is the foundation of good veterinary care, but we also recognize the critical role that additional diagnostic testing plays in ensuring the comprehensive health of your furry family members.

Our hospital is equipped with cutting-edge laboratory technology, enabling us to perform a wide range of blood tests and diagnostic procedures on-site. This capability allows us to quickly obtain vital information about your pet’s health, ensuring timely and effective treatment.

Emphasizing the Importance of Laboratory Work

Observing your pet for any signs or symptoms of illness is essential, but it’s not always enough to get a full picture of their health. Laboratory work is invaluable in this regard, providing our veterinarians with the detailed data needed to understand the nuances of your pet’s condition thoroughly.

Types of Laboratory Work

Our comprehensive laboratory services are designed to cover all aspects of your pet's health, from routine screenings to more specialized diagnostics:

  • Complete Blood Count (CBC): This fundamental test helps evaluate your pet’s overall health and detect a variety of disorders, including anemia, infection, and dehydration.
  • Blood Chemistry Panel: Essential for assessing organ function, this panel can identify liver and kidney diseases, diabetes, and more.
  • Urinalysis: A crucial test for evaluating the health of the kidneys and urinary system, as well as for detecting conditions like urinary tract infections and diabetes.
  • Fecal Examination:Used to identify gastrointestinal parasites that can affect your pet's health and sometimes even pose a risk to human family members.
  • Thyroid Function Tests:These tests are important for diagnosing thyroid diseases, which can have a significant impact on your pet's metabolism, energy level, and overall health.
  • Infectious Disease Screening:Tests for diseases such as Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV), Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV), Heartworm Disease, Lyme Disease, and others, depending on your pet's lifestyle and risk factors.

Our laboratory services are a crucial component of our commitment to providing comprehensive care for your pets. By utilizing these advanced diagnostic tools, we can ensure that your pet receives the most accurate diagnosis and the best possible treatment plan.

Be vigilant for signs of lethargy, diarrhea, vomiting, abnormal urination, loss of appetite, or sudden weight loss. These symptoms could indicate a health issue requiring further investigation. Early and routine lab tests are essential for early detection and effective treatment.

We recommend laboratory tests every 1-2 years for routine check-ups. For puppies and kittens under 6 months, a CBC test is advisable to monitor their development. Senior pets should have lab work done annually to catch any age-related issues early.
